  • Best is a privat tour. The collection is amazing. Take your time and at least 2 hours. Visit the diamond collection as well and the churches in Kremlin. After over to the red square  more »
  • You should book tickets on line for peak time visits as numbers are limited, but beware that you still have to exchange the on-line voucher for a ticket and that still means queuing up with everyone.....  more »
  • I would say this is the best place to visit in Kremlin and in Moscow. The collections here are self explanatory and describes the luxurious living of Czars. This is basically a Museum, named as Armoury chamber, since it was an armoury chamber many years before. Be ready to witness huge waiting lines to get the tickets. Better book online or come 30mins early before the opening time to get the tickets
  • A classy museum! Major part of the collection comes from Russia but many interesting items are also from Persia, India, Turkey, Germany and Sweden.
